CHICAGO - THE MUSICAL

Now showing, Open Run

The musical, considered too dark when it failed in 1975, today seems right in keeping with hard-learned cynicism about the American justice system.

Great show!,

reviewer: from Moscow, Russia
Me & my wife have seen Chicago on April, 24 2010 & totally loved it! The music and the actors were amazing. Bianca Marroquin was so marvellous playing the role of Roxy. She's a real star! Thanks for the wonderful evening!

Michelle Williams was AWFUL,
Mar 19, 2010
reviewer: from Kennebunk, Maine
Unfortunately, if you put a mediocre performer next to phenomenal performers, she's going to look even worse than she is. Roxy was played by Michelle Williams (the least known Destiny's Child member) and she was beyond awful. The woman can't dance and can't act. Other than that, the show was great. Velma was amazing as were all the chorus members. I would have given it higher than 2.5 stars if Michelle Williams hadn't dragged the show down so much. If I were visiting NY, I would wait until they had someone else playing Roxy before buyint tickets to see chicago.

Stunning,
Feb 15, 2010
reviewer: from Bonnells Bay \"Down Under in Aussieland\"
After lining up at the box office,I was lucky enough to score a seat in August 2008. The whole New York scene for a visiting Aussie was enough to send the senses into orbit. The show was magnificent and I feel sorry for people who criticise and expect too much of the artists.

Chicago with Ashlee Simpson-Wentz,
Jan 06, 2010
reviewer: from Massachusetts
Wow! My sister-in-law and I and our two daughters (16 and 13 years old) were very impressed with how Ashlee Simpson held her own on stage with both singing and dancing. All of us had loved the movie and had to get used to the theater format - which in the end we felt really did the musical justice. The music and acting were great. A minimalist approach, but not more was needed. Witty and wonderful show.
